Sick of Inequality: The Case of Action by the Government of Alberta on Social Determinants of Health

Using the framework of social determinants of health, Sick of Inequality looks at growing inequality in Alberta (currently the highest in the country) and quantifies the financial costs of that inequality. In particular, the fact sheet looks at how government policies aimed at reducing inequaltiy could drastically improve health outcomes in Alberta, and exactly how much money we could save in health care costs.
